Vintage 1960s Letterpress Advertisement Stamp - Christmas Seals Fight Tuberculosis- 4x6
For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love. Carl Sagan
Christmas craft time takes a nostalgic turn with this vintage 1966 letterpress stamp. Advertising four bird-themed Christmas seals, this was a midcentury reminder to be vigilant about vaccinations for respiratory illnesses - especially tuberculosis which was the cause of death for about 10,000 people in 1960.
Mounted on wood, this advertisement would have been printed in the form of seals or stickers to use, in addition to stamps, on holiday correspondence. A festive way to spread the word, each bird seal offered a touch of artistic flair to the holiday season.
Today, this stamp offers all sorts of fun possibilities depending on your level of craftiness and design skills. Creating holiday cards, handmade Christmas ornaments or specialty gift wrap are just a few seasonal ideas.
Fun for scrapbookers, paper ephemera collectors and letterpress designers these birds are ready to fly into your space bringing holiday joy straight from the 1960s.
